10:19am
why so many? that's a lot of work. and a lot of money just to apply. but i've been dreaming of this for a long time. your dreams are so big... exciting. i mean, my dreams are real simple-- get married, have a family, stuff like that. i don't know, i can't explain it. i just want to know everything i can about music. i'll get my degree and make something of myself. well, when you become a big star, and you get your first hit song, don't forget your friends here at the factory.

10:22am
do you have an account at this bank? yes. could i see some form of identification please? why do i always have to show my i.d.? he's a new teller. hey, they do it for your protection. right, so we have to show our i.d. every single time. teller: 20, 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, 140, 160, 180, 200. thanks. hi, i'd like to deposit this whole check into my savings account please. how do you live without cash? i get money from the cash machine $40 at a time. oh, i can't stand you, rebecca. don't they charge you for these cash machines? it depends on what kind of account you have and whether you have enough money in it. and you have that much money saved? how else am i going to pay for college? save, save, save. wow. do you know about this videotape? the boston school of music? yeah, this is the music school that becky wants to go to.
10:23am
why doesn't she study something practical like business? she'll never make any money with a degree in music. you never know. narrator: now let's review and discuss the story. kevin is rebecca's brother. speaker: he's a senior in high school. kevin casey, high school graduate. patrick casey. speaker: patrick casey's rebecca's father? yes. hi, dad. speaker: rebecca's mother died a long time ago. rebecca meets her best friend, sandy, in the factory. hey, girl, you just made it. there's a big difference between those two women, rebecca and sandy. your dreams are so big... exciting. i mean, my dreams are real simple-- get married, have a family, stuff like that. i just want to know everything i can about music. i'll get my degree and make something of myself.
10:24am
i don't think it's good to judge what is right or what is wrong and it's just a personal choice. and, sandy, if that's really what she wants to do-- have a family, settle down-- that's fine. you can also do both these days. right. married women are not stuck just sitting home and having children. i think you can have a career and do whatever you want. right, so those two things are not really conflict with each other. you can have both if you can manage it well. in both situations, you can have both if yyou gain something,ll. you lose something at the same time, too.
